A fund-raising morning has helped to raise nearly £5,000 for Brighton charity Off the Fence.

Soulful Saturday, held on September 4, was the first event organised by the charity’s patron Rachel Potter.

More than 70 people booked a place at the event – held at the Glebe sports ground in Hove – which included a morning of pilates and meditation and a veggie brunch from Kleen Kitchen.

The ticket sales plus a raffle and merchandise sales raised more than £3,000. An online auction, which runs until September 18, also looks set to bring in more than £1,500.

Roy Stannard from the charity thanked all those who supported the event and said every penny raised would be used to help the homeless, vulnerable children and those who suffer domestic abuse in the city.
